I spent the afternoon today browsing lots of vintage and antique things at the Annual Antique and Flower Show in Lakefield, Ontario. It's a fundraiser for the Lakefield Horticultural Society, and I was pretty stoked about attending - it's my first time attending.
I had tons of fun nosing around, as you can see from above (cat face!) and below (feather head!). Everything was a bit pricey, but I did come away with three darling little things - a glass owl, deer art and a darling sweater clip.
the dummy gave me the creeps; the stall's owner had him make eyes & laugh at me. creeeeeepy!
I wanted to bring these doxie shakers home with me, but not for $50!
tickle my tummy! such a cute cat - I'm sure I should've brought her home with me, as with the doxie in behind!
I was *this* close to bringing this cat pin home with me ... might go back and get it!
tons of Hudson's Bay blankets! All around $100, which isn't unreasonable, but definitely too much for me.
my amber glass votive owl! Not sure if its meant as a juice glass, but i think it's for a candle. So cute!
sweet forest friends scene, hand-painted on a ceramic oval - perfect for my wall of nature!
me, post-Antiquing & wearing my new golden leaf sweater clip! also, that's my new-to-me camera bag.
I love it so much! Currently, there is a Polaroid, Diana Mini, and my new-to-me Canon S95 inside. :)
What a fabulous way to spend an afternoon - strolling through antiquities and chatting with strangers. I thoroughly enjoyed myself, and will make sure I go again next year! Heck, I'll probably go back tonight and possibly tomorrow.
For my local peeps, this event is today and tomorrow (Aug 8 and 9) from 10am til 8pm. $5 admittance.
